You are not average. You are extraordinary. You do not have to worry about what other people have done - you are doing what helps YOU. It does not matter how long it will take or how often it happens. You will be the person who comes out the other side doing what you needed to do to feel better and be here with us.
Having a good relationship with your psych is so so important. Hope they give you the support you need to get through this one moment at a time.
